  1. Computer crashing during games - please help!


    Hi all,

    I am running the latest build of Windows 10, and I am having a problem whereby my PC will crash during games. It will hard reset itself with no warning, or it will freeze and I have no option but to hard reset it myself. It happens in more demanding games like Blops 4 and less demanding games like Fifa. I will list my specs and what I have tried so far (note it is a 5 year old build):

    Specs:

    Gpu: GTX 670, 4GB
    CPU: AMD FX-8350
    OS: Windows 10, 64 bit
    RAM: 8GB DDR3
    Motherboard: Not 100% but it is definitely Gigabyte AM3+
    HDD: Evo SSD, 120GB and 2TB HDD

    What I have tried:

    Clean installing Windows 10
    Stress testing both CPU and GPU: No crash
    Checking CPU and GPU temperatures during gaming -- both low. CPU in 40s, GPU in 60s.
    Installing latest Nvidia Drivers
    Running memory diagnostics: no errors
    Checking memory diagnostics: no error dumps created. Note that it is not a blue screen, but a hard reset

    So I am a bit stumped. Please help!

    :)

    all games crash!

    I suggest you run rthdribl > http://www.daionet.gr.jp/~masa/archives/rthdribl_1_2.zip
    Increase the window size step by step and watch your vga temps permanently.
    What happens?
    If it crashes, run at stock speeds as suggested before and retry.

    P.S.: When your system locks, does the display signal turn off after a time?
    Stuttering sound or no sound at all when freezing?
    What X1800XT model do you own exactly?

    ASPHALT 8 GAME crashes as soon as it is opened

    Hi Deepak,

    Please reply to the questions mentioned below in order to assist you in a better way.

    • Did you make any changes to the computer prior to the issue?
    • Is the issue specific to a particular game?
    Since the game is crashing, the first thing I would suggest is to reinstall the game and then check if it helps. I would also request you to place the computer in clean boot and then check if it helps.

    Putting your system inClean Boot state helps in identifying if any third party applications or startup items are causing the issue. You need to follow the steps from the article mentioned below to perform
    a Clean Boot.

    https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/929135

    Note: After troubleshooting, refer to this section "How to reset the computer to start normally after clean boot troubleshooting".

    Please revert if the game still crashes.

    Thank you.
